We get most of our energy through oxidative phosphorylation. Oxidative phosphorylation requires certain inputs like pyruvate, glucose, and/or oxygen (there are several pathways to get to the end result). These inputs must be carbon-containing. Dirt is comprised of mostly silicon-based inorganic molecules, which cannot be processed by the body to produce the end-product of oxidative phosphorylation -- adenosine triphosphate, which is useful energy.

Eating dirt gives your body nothing of value -- except maybe a few minerals. But those mean nothing in the grand scheme of things.

You can eat a lot of the bugs in the dirt though.

I'd recommend cooking them first.

So if I eat carbon based dirt I'll be alright?

What if I have trillions maybe quadrillions of tiny needles pumping a strong acid directly into the intermembrane space of the mitochondria of my body and pumping a strong base into the matrix?

I'm pretty sure you'd turned to salt.

Niggers like in Haiti try that to imitate a lower life form like a worm. Actual humans can't survive on dirt and it's harmful for them. Just like being around niggers.

Actually helps with intestinal parasites. At least that's how it started.

Fun fact. You already consume a staggering amount of dirt/rock (Silicon dioxide) all the time.

For example. Take a look at most powdered food goods. One of the primary ingredients is silicon dioxide. They use it as a filler and desiccant.

Nothing stopping you from eating dirt right now. Why not give it a shot and report your findings back to us.

Dirt is expensive where I live

Do it.

It would take more energy to pass the dirt through your body that the energy the nutritional value that micro animals living on the dirt could provide
